Who am I?

I am currently a member of Corporate Business Innovation (CBI) team of MSC Cruises S.A. I was formerly a senior researcher at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in the iCub Facility department. I accomplished my Ph.D. in Robotics at the IIT in 2014 and I received the double M.S. degree from the University of Genova, in 2010, Italy and from the Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France in 2009, within the joint European Master on Advanced Robotics (EMARO). During my research period (2005 - 2007) at the Mechatronics Research Laboratory (MRL), Iran, I was actively involved and awarded in various RoboCup competitions. I have extensive experienes in robotics, complex system and software engineering. My current interests are business innovation and technology transformation.
